SIGGRAPH and the Internet Archive have collaborated to bring online pieces from the 2001 collection whose owners agreed to be included in SIGGRAPH's web archive. We hope it provides an enjoyable and useful tool for scientists, engineers, mathematicians, artists, filmmakers, computer graphics professionals, and all animaniacs!

A predatory reptile makes a cute pet when it's young, but can it be fun to eat from a can instead of catching food on the hoof? And what if the owner gives up trying to care properly for it? Only really well prepared people can take care of an adult exotic pet well enough to give it a pleasant life.

Visually stunning and action packed, Freeware is a 3-D, CG-animated thrill ride through a futuristic world.

I made the inorganic objects in this desolate space appear to move of their own volition. Software used ''MAYA''. All motions of an object are controlled by ''MEL(Maya Embedded Language)'' and ''Expression''. This work was awarded excellence prize in the ''Non-interactive division'' of the ''2000 4th.Agency for Cultural Affairs media Arts Festival''.

Perestroika (pur es troiku) was created as a form of representing a sudden change. Though its Russian political ties are evident, ôperestroikaö, meaning restructuring, is to be taken in the more literal sense of the word. It is rather an individualÆs realization to change what he once believed to be something else. Aided by his aboriginal self, his actions threaten to throw the balance off current reality. Software: Newtek Lightwave 6.5, Adobe Photoshop 6, Adobe Afterfx 4.1, Sasquatch
